If you haven’t read it yet, you should really read James Taranto’s column, The Authoritarian Media: The New York Times has crossed a moral line. “The New York Times has seized on a madman’s act of wanton violence as an excuse to instigate a witch hunt against those it regards as its domestic foes. ‘Instigate’ is not too strong a word here. . . . The Times is far from alone in responding to the Tucson massacre with false accusations and inflammatory innuendoes against its foes. We focus on the Times because it is the leader–the most authoritative voice of the left-liberal media, or what used to be called the ‘mainstream’ media.” It’s nice to see the Wall Street Journal stepping up as a voice of reason on this.
